Fall for Red

{Anne Hathaway with a timeless look for red lips in The Devil Wears Prada}

A bold, red lip is a timeless classic, but this fall, it’s especially hot.  If you are only adding one piece to your fall wardrobe, let it be a red lipstick.  Think you can’t wear red?  There is a perfect red for everyone!  Go to your favourite beauty counter, mine is here, and try on all different types of red.  The staff at the counter will usually recommend the shades they believe to best suite your skin tone.  If you’re hesitant to try a full-on red lip, try a glaze or a stain for a softer effect.  These are some of my favourites:

  1. Chanel – Gabrielle – My work red, a true, sophisticated and classic red.
  2. Benefit – Benetint – A ‘just been kissing’ soft, natural stain.
  3. Stila – Poppy Colour Pot – Dual purpose lip and cheek stain, perfect for getting a soft stain.
  4. Chanel – Paris – The perfect evening red with the perfect name.  And a hint of shine.
  5. MAC – Lady Danger – Intense, bright orangy red.  Every girl should have a version of this shade.
  6. Jane Iredale – Nicole– A soft, true red glaze with a matte affect, also seen here.
  7. Nars – Cruella – Easy application chubby stick.  Deep, bluish red.
  8. Lipstick Queen – Medieval – Poppy King has mastered the sheer, balmy blood red. 
  9. Chanel – Lune Rosse – A deep burgundy red, perfect for the fall. 
  10. MAC – Fushia – An intensely pigmented pinky red.  Can be used as a soft stain or a deep matte.
